Haybusak kam Haykakan busabanut'iwn [Armenian Botany], Venice, 1895 by Levon (Ghewond) Alishan. An invaluable encyclopedic work on the flora of the Armenian highlands. This massive study (697 pdf pages) contains alphabetical entries for the major plants, trees, shrubs, as well as fungi. Many entries are accompanied by gorgeous, life-like drawings. There is also precious anecdotal evidence of these plants' usage by the Armenians of the 19th century and before. Latin, French, Turkish and Arabic names (the last two in Armenian characters) appear in cross-referenced indices at the back. This is a major source for the study of Armenian ethnobotany.
